Hedgehog's Breakfast

Back in June, we had an INSET during a staff meeting on how to use the DigiBlue, a simple video camera designed for use by children. It was led by Y, another former colleague of mine from the Advisory Service, so it was good to catch up with her. During the staff meeting, I worked with a group to make a short film using Stop-Go animation techniques. The DigiBlue was connected to Y's laptop, so I didn't have a copy, but last week she sent me one, so I thought I'd load it up here - you know, just to add to the image that we teachers just doss about after the children have gone home...

A true work of art. Such raw emotion! Bitter-sweet.

Hey, just replying to your comment on my blog. Thanks for reading! Appreciate the insight. Oh and although I do say training wheels, stabilizers makes perfect sense and I knew exactly what you meant:)

By the way, this video is hilarious. What do you teach?

Love it - going to put a link to it tomorrow to show that us teachers don't waste are time during INSETS - we have real creative fun! :)

Ah, but Nic, you can't show the kids the end, you might traumatise them for life!!!

(Actually you can - when my father in law died, one of mine hid behind the curtain and prayed for his return, till her elder sister caustically informed her that Grandpa was dead and no amount of praying was going to bring him back!)

love Janex
